OK, it's fine to have them separated, but in that case shouldn't the
copyright of the default stanza match what the COPYRIGHT file says, or maybe

As you are the author of the man page in question here, do you agree to
license the file man/man1/splat.1 under a DFSG-free license, e.g. GPL-2+?

Yes, of course, according to the mainline project license.

Therefore I suggest to either add the standard GPL boilerplate to the man page or, if you prefer, just remove the scary "All rights reserved.", so that one doesn't have to wonder if the project license really applies to this file.

patch fixes some issues I already noticed:

Thanks, syntax changes will happen on your advice.

You're welcome.
